Park Ideas Presented Today

May 3, 2012 Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Offer your ideas for a new park near the Wilson Bridge.

After a meeting yesterday to gather ideas from the public about design options for a new park near the Wilson Bridge, the nonprofit Rendezvous Lands Conservancy will present design ideas today that incorporate the input received from locals. Hal Hutchinson of the LOR Foundation, which helped secure the land for public use, explained the general blueprint for the 40-acre park which includes the Wilson boat launch.

“The basic concept for the park is for it to be a natural park with passive recreation opportunities and increased access to the Snake River and the designs will be based on that concept,” Hutchinson said.

A passive park means that the property will remain in its natural state with a focus on pedestrian activities such as jogging, walking and cross-country skiing. Features that would allow organized sports such as soccer or softball fields will not be included in the design. The workshop is tonight, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Center for the Arts. To offer your input online take a survey here.
